    Default Have you paid for resume help?

    I havent got a resume anymore (lost it on my old computer).. I am working at the moment and love my job & employers but I need more hours than they can offer.

    Have you used professional resume / cover help? Was it worth it or is google just as good?

    I have never applied for a position that requires a cover letter addressing selection criteria but there are afew I am interested in. Any tips?

    I have always written my own. A selection criteria is a bit different though, what industry OP.? My selection criteria is usually 1 page per criteria and set out pretty specifically.

    The Careers website has sample resumes. I did mine from there years ago and its gotten me every job iv applied for so far
    Also selection criteria is very common.in public service jobs. If you go to the APS.gov website they have a pdf file about applying for jobs and a model on how to address selection criteria. I have used the model many times and its most helpful ! Sorry i dont have the link.
    Good luck !

    I did years ago, I was applying for a government position and there was so much selection criteria required.
    It didn't cost too much and I got the job.:-)

    I did years ago and at the interviews all the bosses would compliment on how well done the resume was. Scored me some jobs too :-) I kept a copy and as the years progressed I just changed a few things and it did it all myself.

    Admin for government.

    The one I am most keen on though is admin in a local private school. The selection criteria looks reasonably simple I'm just not sure how to address them properly.
